In the romantic comedy Friends with Benefits, Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake make the proverbial “Friends with Benefits” (FWB) relationship look easy.  What’s not to like about having no-strings-attached sex with someone who you respect, trust, and who makes you feel safe?  And they have the added bonus of their “casual sex” arrangement resulting in true love.  Well, I’m here to offer you an anecdote from my life, which happens not to mesh with the Hollywood version of FWB.

Q: DEAR EMILY,

My boyfriend and I broke up about six months ago, but we’re still living together (we don’t want the expense of breaking our lease, and where we live is very seasonal so it’s hard to find new tenants). He ended things because he was going through some personal stuff and wanted to work on himself. The problem is that we never stopped having sex.

Things started up again casually, where it was just hot and random, but I’ve noticed that lately he has started to bring some feelings back into it and I am finding that I too still have feelings for him. He is very intimate, cupping my face, telling me that he loves me. Then going out with friends and acting single. He’s very back and forth about it. I’m totally confused.

I don’t know if this is normal, or maybe he still wants to be with me? Is it possible to have a “friend with benefits” with an ex?
